Dear Chairman Abibu,

Thank you very much for the update to members and the Community.

The finding "That the Investigation Committee (IC) is satisfied that 
there was no evidence of harassment, bullying or intimidation by Board 
members"  a bit consoling, but also troubling because the release is a 
summary.The staff petition and allegations was not even about NDA 
violation by Sunday Folayan.

Kindly take note of the following:

1. The petitioner specifically mentioned "Sunday Folayan, Haitham 
El-Nakhal and other Board members". Why summarize the findings as "... 
by Board members?", knowing that Sunday Folayan is no more a Board 
member? Why not clear the accused outrightly and not in veiled 
statements. The statement on the NDA violation is very clear.

2 An accusation was made. Marriages and careers could have been 
destroyed, if not for some few people (Gabriella, Owen DeLong, Olutayo, 
Chivelier and Ben Roberts) that saw through the charade. Where is justice?

Injustice does not come in any different form. Some day, more truths 
will surface, and it will not be because of privacy issues.

I trust the membership and community will learn from this saga, and 
allow the healing process take place.

Let us give peace a chance for some sacrifices to be worthwhile. AFRINIC 
will wax stronger, this I know.

  I am now done, I will hold my peace.
